Luge Ride

We'll be traveling from Appenzell to Lauterbrunnen via Luzern on 7/11/17. We'd like like to go on a luge ride in Luzern. I believe the rides are at Mt. Pilatus and I'm wondering if you think there's enough time to do all this in a day? What is the travel like from Luzern to Mt. Pilatus - another train or ...?
Thank you.

I don't know about Luge rides in Luzern, but there is one near Lauterbrunnen.
From Laut., take a train to Grindelwald (train switch in Zweilutschinen). Walk thru Grindelwald until you see the cable car station that goes to Pfingstegg. At the top is a luge ride with fantastic views for a about $3 a ride.
See pfingstegg.ch on the web.

Here's the link to the Mt. Pilatus luge.

With any luck, I will be riding it a few times on Sunday, july 16.

My guess is that your day is pretty full already. Though it appears easy to travel to the luge run (bus and cable car), it looks like a 3-4 hour-ish round trip from Luzern. Just my guess.

I will be combining the luge run with the full trip up and down Mt. Pilatus.
